    Yelled for someone to call 911, yelled for them to stop, then would have done whatever it took to stop them from killing the kid. and then I probably would have been reloading after the first mag was empty.

    I don't think I could live with myself if I was just a "good witness" and the guy ended up dying knowing I could have done something about it, but then again you don't know if the others were armed and I wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of a 5 vs 1 shooting. I sure wouldn't want to be carrying a 7rd capacity 1911 in a circumstance like that.

    LA law says when you fear "great bodily harm"

    Wouldn't 5 guy's beating someone, no firearm or not, be considered that?

    Don't start with that shit. 4 white kids in my town killed a homeless guy because they were bored -- race isn't an issue when it comes to this barbaric bullshit.

    To answer the question, I think (you'll never know until you're actually in that position) that I would have started yelling for them to stop, called 911 and waited for a moment. The minute I saw their gun, I would have left -- you can bet your ass that I will not be starting a gun fight in the middle of a restaurant; like Accord said, 5 vs 1 will not be pretty and your shot placement will be great, but with 50+ rounds flying at you, they're gonna hit something. It's just a shitty situation that a lone gun carrying patron isn't going to be able to disseminate themselves.

    Yeah? How many black guys do you see smothering their whole families and then killing themselves? How many black mothers do you see strapping their 2 young children into a car and driving it into a lake? How many black people do you see bombing abortion clinics or public buildings? How many black kids do you see running into schools and gunning down their classmates? All races do stupid shit -- blame the person, not their fucking skin color.

    "Monsignor: And I am reminded, on this holy day, of the sad story of Kitty Genovese. As you all may remember, a long time ago, almost thirty years ago, this poor soul cried out for help time and time again, but no person answered her calls. Though many saw, no one so much as called the police. They all just watched as Kitty was being stabbed to death in broad daylight. They watched as her assailant walked away. Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men."

    You think the creators of Boon Dock Saints would pay for the biggest whore of a lawyer to bail my ass out(criminally and financially) if I burned those fuckers down? I think not.

    I think he means he wouldn't take a physical act, save dialing 911.

    4 guys, at least one with a firearm, if I had a CCW, I wouldn't have done shit except called the cops. Drawing would be a suicide mission, especially if you don't know who else has a gun

    I don't know if I'd draw or not. I would call the police for sure, but I don't think I would draw unless they seemed to be paying a lot of attention to me or my family. If they did, I'd probably draw and hope only one of them was armed. Shitty situation either way.

    A guy gets bumped in the shoulder and beat to death right in front of me by a group of guys with guns? That would shock me but the first thing that would go through my mind is "These guys are nuts. What if they start shooting at the rest of the people in the restaraunt when they're done with this guy?" So now I have a few choices. Hide somewhere until they leave, try to get out the back door or try to stop them. They've got their attention focused on the guy so if I shoot well and I hit the guy with the gun first then I've got a pretty good chance of getting all four of them before they can draw on me. I'd have to be put in the situation to know for sure what I'd do. I sure as hell wouldn't stand there gawking over them.

    Well, for starters, I'd be wishing I carried more than one spare mag.
